Guys, it’s happening – back to school that is. The kids are going to be out there waiting for the bus before we know it and trust me, I know how chaotic school mornings can be. It’s important to find ways to cut back on the chaos and make everyone’s lives a little easier and I believe I’ve found the secrets to a smooth morning.
1. Lay out clothes the night before.
Picking out clothes seems like something that shouldn’t take more than five minutes in the morning, however, when you’re in a hurry it can take forever. If you take five minutes the night before and lay out yours & the kids clothes, you will eliminate having to worry about it in the morning.
2. Set the alarm for a few minutes early.
Try getting the family to wake up at least 10-15 minutes earlier than normal on school mornings. Kids can be slow getting around because they are struggling to get used to a routine, so getting up a few minutes earlier will give them a little more time to wake up and get going. This might mean sending the kids to bed a few minutes earlier as well.
3. Shower the night before.
This one stems from the fact that I grew up in a one bathroom household and we literally had scheduled bathroom times. We have two bathrooms in our house, but I have my boys shower at night and that eliminates a whole thing off of our morning to-do list. It saves us a good 30 minutes.
4. Keep breakfast stress free!
Breakfast is also one of those trouble makers on school mornings. It’s time to kick the chaos to the curb with the help of easy breakfast ideas. That’s where Jimmy Dean comes in and makes it possible for me to serve a good, hearty breakfast to my boys before they head out to school.
